Like all of Formigli’s frames, the new 99 mountain bike is available in full custom geometry. And it’s full carbon fiber, just like their top road bikes, and all made 100% in house in Italy. They’re able to customize the bike by using tube-to-tube construction, which also gives them control over the torsional stiffness. But what really sets the 99 apart is the rear end…
Renzo Formigli has taken some of the road bike designs to extremes. By making the seatstays flatter than ever and also flattening the chainstays, the bike is made to soak up trail chatter extremely well. The tubes are wide enough to keep it laterally stiff, so the tail won’t wag as you whip through the trees.
The frame is made of high modulus carbon. The rear end is spec’d as a 142 thru axle, but being custom, you could probably talk them into figuring out Boost spacing (hopefully).
Four stock sizes and 14 paint schemes will be available, or go custom on any or all of that. Pricing upon request.
